Preventing JFFS2 partial page writes?

I'm using a Micron 512MB NAND which has an internal 4-bit ECC engine, 
and am finding lots of ECC errors while using JFFS2.  The same NAND 
works find using YAFFS so I know the underlying MTD driver works properly.

The big question I have is whether JFFS2 does partial page writes and if 
so how to disable them.

Thanks in advance!
